Global Warming Affecting Monsoon

Global Warming Affecting Monsoon

In the coming time, the consequence of global warming is going to be severe as monsoon will be delayed after every five years. The prediction of the changing monsoon pattern has been done by Professor Anders Levermann at Climate Impact Research.

Countries like India rely over the monsoon for agriculture. In India, the monsoon season lasts from June to September. In 2009, drought was experienced by the country because of the fall of rainfall. Because of the drought, the prices of food commodities touched the sky.

It is estimated that in the coming years, the temperature will rise by 4.6 degree C. It has also been predicted that before reaching 2200 there will be about 50 failed monsoons. Anders Levermann said, "In the past century the Indian monsoon has been very stable. It is already a catastrophe with 10% less rain than the average".

About 200 nations have joined hands in reducing the impact of global warming so that natural disasters like draught and flood could be avoided. From 26th of November onwards environment ministries from all over the world will attend a meeting in Qatar. The meeting will be aimed at reducing the global warming impacts.
